But usually don't you get a another BA/BS in a different subject? A JD is a general degree...I don't know if this makes a difference

Yeah, but you aren't on a forced curve while getting a BA/BS.

Are there any ABA rules against it?

In a BA/BS program, however, you aren't curved against your peers.  I simply do not see law schools or the ABA permitting repeats to get an advantage over other students.

But wait!  What if you got THREE JDs, each from a university with a different specialization?  Or how about getting SIX JDs and becoming SUPERLAWYER, the all-American superhero that is able to leap a logical gap in a single bound, is faster than a speeding nolo contendre plea and more powerful than a motion for habeas corpus? Eggshell skulls are no match for SUPERLAWYER!

But you don't really specialize in law school. It's a general degree.  Only crap schools like Mercer boast about specializations because it's the only way they can entice students to go there ;).

Wise ass.

Are you honestly dissing Harvard's Internet Forum Law program, specializing in claims of defamation, trolling and unnecessary LOLing?
